Well we all know where I am – yep, bed snuggled up where I usually am until at least 11AM on any given Saturday. The only other place I would rather be – horizontal (slight chair tilt for max UV exposure – sunscreen of course), in the exact same position on a beach. But that’s not the case – so I’ll settle for the second best, my bed with good old “Lucille the Laptop” keeping my legs warm as I catch up on some reading…
Well today I am forcing myself to dream of sunshine since one of the snowiest winters ever have clearly led us into new buckets of rain. But the beauty of a new week is that it means new opportunity to bring a little sunshine…
I have a lot of people to thank (blame) for this post. The last time I saw a beach was 6+ months ago and it feels like much longer. Though, I may have had my head down in my new job for only a few days now – is it bad that I am already thinking about vacation?
I have to say for a day of luck – I am not feeling so lucky. Getting out of bed this morning wasn’t easy and somehow I think the leprechauns are legitimately punishing me for hitting the snooze bar.
Sometimes days aren’t easy to face – and in PR a lot of little things that can fly at you, almost as if the professional be-be gun is firing and you’re today’s target. I think the BIG-ness of my big news is weighing on me more than ever so I am looking to you all to help me find my pot of gold! Sometimes we just need a little inspiration… and I can thank some of my favorites for that.
A PICK ME UP // Sometimes the blogosphere seems like its always coming up roses – so on days like today this post from Molly (A Piece of Toast) is my perfect remedy and break from an arguably mistaken over-shopped, over-tweeted life. Thanks for keeping it real!
A LITTLE GREEN // Okay fine – maybe I will work a little green into the repertoire today. Twist my arm after I saw these Steve Madden heels and this UH-MAZING Janna Conner Agate Bracelet. And I have to say this version of Galway Girl will put a jig in your step today.
FLIP THE PR SWITCH // There’s so many sides to the PR coin – and this interview thanks to The Everygirl is changing what it means to be #geekchic in the city!
SJP GOES VIRAL // Now we know everyone has probably seen this video by now but thanks to some friends inside CNE I got to see the first cut before the SJPxNordstrom event. The best part – SJP asked how it looked! “Fabulous SJP, fabulous!” – (aside – Oh, and I may have binge watched season 6 of SATC yesterday…)
May you find your luck today!
I know, I know – I’ve gone completely rogue. Twitter was about to put out an APB on me for leaving it high and dry, (that’s basically a crime right?) but trust me when I say it was for all the right reasons.
BIG THINGS // So there are some big changes afoot! I can’t wait to share with you all – but as PRBMom tells me – “patience is a virtue.” (and anyone who knows me knows I really hate that saying…) Patience…ew…. but trust me the changes are worth the wait!
ANXIETY // It’s literally like Albertina knew what to do and Erin (though I was suffering from different ailments) was totally speaking my language. I am not one for worrying, but this weekend threw me for a loop! Even though it ended “happy” I am so thankful I got to be around friends and church yesterday.
STRENGTH // With a little anxiety always comes sources of strength. Somehow however -instead off suffering from lack of sleep I was able to take to the streets this morning for a 6:30 AM run. Jenna would be proud. Ya, not a morning person so this was more or less a miracle. Top that off with my new squat challenge and HELLO spring!
STYLE // I don’t know why but I am loving pastel pink and black lately – in all of its forms. Brighton looks adorable in a trench and those blue heeled stunners and I am crushing on this Topshop structured blouse and for a more relaxed look this sleeveless overlay from Oasap. Pair it with this black A-line skirt (and maybe these booties and this bag and these sunnies!) and I am ready for some warmer weather!
BREAK-UPS // I have been break-up mode this past week with old habits, my winter wardrobe, comfortable things and toxic people – so needless to say though Juan-Pablo may be “breaking up with someone tonight” something’s in the water… Do you go through periods of “cleaning out?”
I wont be live tweeting tonight – spending some quality time with the GLAM FAM! But will catch up just in time for a final recap of El Bachelor tomorrow! – for the record TV – you and I are going to have another one of those “needy” conversations again….image via
